LuxeGetaways - - Editor’s Note - BY DA­MON M. BANKS

El­len­bor­ough Park is a 15th cen­tury manor house lo­cated in the heart of the Cotswolds, ad­ja­cent to the fa­mous Chel­tenham Race­course. The ho­tel boasts a world-class spa and gourmet res­tau­rant, and is com­prised of 60 large bed­rooms and suites de­signed by Nina Campbell. “More than just a view” is a term com­monly used to de­scribe the Cotswolds. The re­gion is fa­mous for its pic­turesque views and lime­stone vil­lages, but also presents lively cul­tural and sport­ing events, fes­ti­vals, quirky shops and a wealth of pubs and restau­rants.

El­len­bor­ough Park is the quin­tes­sen­tial coun­try­side get­away, where guests en­joy English el­e­gance, lav­ish ameni­ties and a wide range of ac­tiv­i­ties. The ho­tel has all of the best fea­tures of an award win­ning coun­try house ho­tel – an ex­ten­sive wine cel­lar, In­dian-themed Spa and swim­ming pool. This lux­ury Cotswolds des­ti­na­tion ho­tel also has its own pri­vate ac­cess to the fa­mous Chel­tenham Race­course, which is the host to eight steeple­chase races per year. The Great Hall is a pic­ture-per­fect lo­ca­tion for Af­ter­noon Tea, and is a daily affair not-to-be-missed when en­joy­ing time at this coun­try­side es­tate. In ad­di­tion to lim­ited edi­tion tea oc­ca­sions through­out the year, the iconic cakes and sand­wiches are per­fect com­pli­ments to their list of black, green, white, herbal, oo­long and even home­made in­fu­sion teas, such as hot gin­ger and fresh mint. You need to visit El­len­bor­ough Park to en­joy the real thing when it comes to the in­ven­tive drinks cre­ated by their bar­tenders; but for those feel­ing ad­ven­tur­ous, they have pro­vided the main in­gre­di­ents so that you can try to re-cre­ate th­ese fa­vorite cock­tails at home. Please drink re­spon­si­bly.
